Shorting Translate Bio shares

There are currently 10.8 million Translate Bio shares held short by investors – that's known as Translate Bio's "short interest". This figure is 0.3% up from 10.8 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Translate Bio shares can be evaluated.

Translate Bio's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Translate Bio's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Translate Bio shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Translate Bio shares traded daily (recently around 897016.98425849). Translate Bio's SIR currently stands at 12.07. In other words for every 100,000 Translate Bio shares traded daily on the market, roughly 12070 shares are currently held short.

However Translate Bio's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Translate Bio shares, or, against the total number of tradable Translate Bio shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Translate Bio's short interest could be expressed as 0.15% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Translate Bio shares in existence, roughly 150 shares are currently held short) or 0.3072% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Translate Bio shares, roughly 307 shares are currently held short).

A SIR above 10% would generally be considered pretty high, pointing to a potentially pessimistic outlook for the share price and a discouraging interest in betting against Translate Bio.
